The rumor is indeed true: the Nokia 3310 is back! Do you feel the rush of nostalgic feelings now?
HMD Global has indeed saved its best news for last at its MWC 2017 event today. Before you get too excited though, the 2017 version of the Nokia 3310 is still a feature phone although in a much more advanced form than its predecessor.
Retaining the iconic phone’s overall design, the new 3310 runs on the Series 30+ operating system. The 2G feature phone is built with 2.4-inch QVGA display with a polarised layer (for increased sunlight readability) alongside 16MB internal memory. It also supports microSD cards with capacity of up to 32GB.
Unlike the original 3310, the 2017 model has a camera on its back with a 2-megapixels sensor and LED flash. Thanks to the removable 1,200mAh battery, the phone is able to last up to 31 days with maximum talk time of 22.1 hours as well as MP3 and FM radio playback time of 51 hours and 39 hours respectively.
The 2017 Nokia 3310 will be released in Q2 of this year with a price tag of EUR 49 (about RM 230) in both single and dual SIM variants. Asia Pacific will be one of the first markets to receive it alongside Africa, Europe, Middle East, and India.
